An insight into risk factors for root resorption during orthodontic treatment

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The aim of this study is to cover the literature review on the risk of orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption during orthodontic treatment. Reported studies related on root resorption in orthodontics until 2016 were searched electronically through PubMed, Scopus and ScienceDirect using key words such as ‘risk’, ‘root’, ‘resorption’ and ‘orthodontic’. In the findings, there is a wide range of prevalence of root resorption (4-91%) caused by orthodontic treatment and this was mainly due to various assessment methods. The risk of root resorption was further divided into host and treatment mechanic factors. Host risk factors that were found significant for root resorption during orthodontic treatment are teeth with existing root resorption during pretreatment, anterior openbite, abnormal root shape and teeth with root canal therapy. Significant risk factors for treatment mechanics include longer duration of treatment, heavy force, intrusion and extraction of premolars. This study also discusses ongoing studies towards finding biological markers for root resorption for periodic monitoring, which essentially provides a safer method, overcoming the limitation of radiograph. These latest 5 years of findings on the studies of risk factors of orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption have not changed much from the old studies. Orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption is inevitable, however it can be prevented from progressing into severe stage; provided that the orthodontists taking early measures and aware of the host and treatment risk factors plus biomarkers involved.
